binx + a$ap rocky bring on the battle of the sexes in the girls and boys issue!
It’s an incredibly exciting time to be alive. The internet and social media have had a revolutionary impact on the way we interact, socialise, work and play, and as a result given rise to one of the most exciting and creative periods of recent decades. In The Girls + Boys Issue of i-D we explore what it means for boys and girls, like ourselves, growing up today. Splitting the issue down the middle, model of the moment Leona ‘Binx’ Walton heads up the GIRLS, while fashion’s favourite rapper A$AP Rocky heads up the BOYS.
Under new management, a 28 year old black image of flagrant modernity, Olivier Rousteing is bringing a new attitude to fashion.
As the creative director of Balmain, Rousteing is determined not to design clothes but to also bring a new vision to fashion - made clear when he named Rihanna as the new face of Balmain, when the singer starred in the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
Forgoing the help of a stylist (“If I made a mistake, I wanted it to be my own,” he says), Rousteing pulled together his first collection, for resort 2012, in two short months, and with it set the tone for a more refined—albeit no less sex-fueled—Balmain. “I loved working with Christophe, but we exist in two different worlds,” Rousteing says. “He’s rock ’n’ roll; I’m hip-hop. He’s more street wear; I’m more couture. He’s into jeans; I prefer a tailored suit jacket and pants. We both like a girl to look sexy, but we express it in different ways.”
For fall, he presented a polished hip-hop/safari mash-up that opened with the black model Jourdan Dunn. But it is perhaps the photographs seen here, featuring Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, and Iman, that best express his vision for Balmain. “These women are inspiring to so many different people,” he says. “Bringing them together represents the concept I’m working toward.”
Bad Gal Rihanna: The World’s Wildest Style Icon takes the cover for W Magazine to show her wild side.
Shot by masterful duo Mert & Marcus, the editorial finds Rihanna clad in a variety of exotic hairs, covered in bold hues of ‘tribal’ paint and adorned in precious jewelry. The singer fits perfectly with the editorial’s raw, native vibe, herself being a beauty of historic proportions.
